Design support · GX Works 2 / GX Works 3 linkage × MC AppBuilder

What is MC AppBuilder

MC AppBuilder is an engineering support tool that makes it easy to build a plant system where MC Works 64 and MELSEC sequencer are used, and is included as standard in MC Works 64.

 

Automatic generation of monitoring screen, tag setting, sequencer program

Automatically generates monitoring screen (including symbol parts and face plate parts), OPC tag setting (including alarm and trend setting), sequencer project (including sequence program and label definition). Automatic generation makes design easier and reduces labor of registering tags. This function also increases the affinity with Mitsubishi Electric FA equipment.




Manage system configuration in tree form

By importing a device list (CSV format) created with CAD or Microsoft® Visio® etc. to MC AppBuilder, you can build a system tree that expresses the equipment configuration of the plant. You can manage the equipment configuration of the plant in a tree format easy to understand intuitively.


Reduction of design man-hour by template *

The library contents are managed collectively as a template as design contents which can be shared for each type of equipment. By assigning templates corresponding to the devices on the system tree at design time, we can reduce design man-hour. You can register and reuse templates as templates, as well as providing your own expertise as a template.

* Templates include graphic parts information such as symbols and faceplates, control program information such as function blocks, various interface information (alarm, trend setting), etc.

 

Easy update system

You can add or delete devices to the finished system. Reduce design man-hour at system update.

 

Simplified monitoring of energy measuring instruments

Monitor screen and OPC tag setting information can be generated automatically by importing measurement point information created by Mitsubishi Electric's energy saving data collection server EcoServer III to the MC App Builder. 
By linking with the setting tool of EcoServer III, it is possible to reduce the monitoring screen and OPC tag setting man-hour.


Easy creation of GOT screen


Symbol for GOT and faceplate are installed, contributing to reduction of graphic man-hours of GOT screen. 
The GOT screen installed in MC Works 64 is described in the template library list.
